This is a 2 hour docent led walk with some beach walking and dirt paths.
Register yourself and a friend, so we know who to look for.

The 235-acre Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve, a part of Pescadero State Beach,
lies on the eastern side of Highway 1 and surrounds the confluence of the Butano and
Pescadero Creeks. It is the only extensive wetland along the coast of the
San Francisco Peninsula. The Marsh Preserve includes several habitats—a tidal
estuary, freshwater marsh, brackish water marsh, dense riparian woods, and
northern coastal scrub.
Weather permitting, the walk will be led by Suzanne Black, a California State Park
volunteer docent. Our group will leave from the stairs in the middle Pescadero
Beach parking lot at 10 AM. The walk will last about two hours. Sturdy shoes and
layered clothing are advised. Bring water, sun screen and binoculars. Note, this
walk includes walking on the beach and on trails that may be uneven. North Pond. (Photo: © Suzanne Black)
